This Restaurant In Iowa Used To Be A Firehouse And You’ll Want To Visit

Iowans have always been proud of their history, and thanks to efforts from many citizens, countless historic buildings have been saved from demolition or abandonment. This is something our state can really be proud of – after all, do you remember how we all rallied to rebuild Breitbach’s Country Restaurant after their back-to-back fires? Well, just a few years ago, a group of Des Moines citizens gathered to save one of the city’s most historic buildings. Now, it’s a full social club with a cafe, bar, and one of the best Latin restaurants in the state!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Beyond great food, you can also participate in all sorts of classes and events at DMSC! Find out more about the events and offerings at Des Moines Social Club here.
